Let’s Future Proof Saskatoon for the next generation:
Professionally accredited author Shane Wolffe will show you how to cost-effectively build your home to be as much as 85% more energy efficient, even in extreme climates. Written for the average person, this book simplifies building principles that formed the foundation of the Passivhaus (Passive House) standard, a building standard that produces ultra-low energy buildings. These are principles pioneered and perfected in Saskatchewan – a province with one of the most extreme climates in the world with yearly temperatures ranging from -40°C (-40F) to 35°C (95F). If energy efficiency can be economically implemented in such a harsh climate, it can be done anywhere.
You will learn how our society has created fossil fuel addicted buildings, why it’s a massive problem, and what can be done about it. By exposing out-dated construction attitudes and revealing the powerful principles of energy efficient building in a simplified manner, the book illustrates and explains how the pioneers in the field have been building homes to save energy and construction costs for years. This information will empower you to build, or hire a contractor to build, energy efficiency into your new home, or even implement it into your existing home. If you would like to own a more comfortable, healthier, environmentally responsible and energy efficient home without having to change your lifestyle, then this book was written for you. As the climate warms, weather patterns become more erratic, and fuel prices rise, you will have the peace of mind knowing your home is truly Future Proof.
